Phillip’s Story

As a teenager, Phillip worked for this father’s construction company, then moved into the hospitality industry. By age 26, he became the youngest General Manager and a Vice President of Ramada Hotels, the five-star hotel system for Barker Enterprises.

During this time, after a devastating fire at one of the hotel properties in Texas resulting in loss of life and property, including scores of serious injuries, Phillip was selected to take on the enormous task of rebuilding the hotel. He soon found that his job wasn’t just to fix the structure itself, but to help mend the shattered morale of the people who worked there.

Working side-by-side with the construction team and hotel employees, whether it was washing dishes or making beds, Phillip created a standard for teamwork, choosing to lead, inspire and motivate from within.

The results proved exceptional with the hotel’s revenue going from $20,000 a month to over 12 million dollars a year in just four years. During this time, Phillip designed processes and products for flooring and construction companies nationwide that are still being sold from the Southwest to the Midwest.

Today, Phillip is a certified Zig Ziglar keynote speaker and author of “Carried by Angels.”

As an expert transformer, Phillip applied his own principles when a serious automobile accident found him fighting for his life, ultimately resulting in the loss of his leg. As a disabled man, he readjusted and faced his challenges head on.

Phillips says, “I’ve learned that our greatest tragedies can be our greatest blessing.” He’s walking proof that, no matter what, life holds great promise and anyone can achieve greatness. Zig Ziglar would agree. .
